If you’re looking for things to do in Cairns, Australia, you have to check out the Pullman Cairns Hotel High Tea! It’s perfect for a special occasion or just a fun treat!

Almost everyone who visits Cairns, Australia has plans to go to the Great Barrier Reef. There are many ways to experience the Reef, from glass bottomed boats to snorkeling to Scuba diving. I did my PADI certification dives in Thailand, but that was six years ago!
